  • Memphis Grizzlies are 4-7-0 ATS in their last 11 games
  • The Over has cashed in 5 of Memphis' last 7 road games

Head To Head

  • Minnesota Timberwolves lead the all-time series 57-56
  • Minnesota Timberwolves won 127-103 when the two teams last met on December 8

Memphis Grizzlies Form

Memphis head to Minnesota having bounced back from a couple of home losses with a win.

The Grizzlies ended 2023 on a three-game win losing skid, but enjoyed a winning start to 2024 as they downed San Antonio 106-98.

They then lost 116-111 at home to Toronto, only to respond with a run of three consecutive victories on the road.

Memphis beat the Los Angeles Lakers 127-113, and backed that up with a 121-115 victory in Phoenix and a 120-103 success in Dallas.

The Grizzlies’ run was ended by a 128-119 defeat to the LA Clippers and a 106-94 loss to New York, but they rebounded on Monday with a 116-107 success against Golden State.

Minnesota Timberwolves Form

Minnesota enter this matchup having won each of their last three games to improve to 29-11.

The Timberwolves made a slow start to 2024 as they lost 112-106 in New York and 117-106 at home to New Orleans.

They finally got their first win of the year when they won 122-95 in Houston, but they failed to build on that as they were then beaten 115-108 in Dallas.

Minnesota then downed Orlando 113-92 before wrapping up that four-game road trip with a 127-120 overtime defeat in Boston.

The Timberwolves responded when they returned home though, blowing out Portland 116-93 and beating the LA Clippers 109-105, and they made it three-in-a-row with a 124-117 win in Detroit last night.

Verdict

Memphis are dealing with some key injuries right now, and that spells trouble against an in-form Minnesota team who have been rock solid at home.
